The Tank...

Everyone knows were going to end up finishing 10th or 9th right?

The Tank...

...is officially over

only 5 of our remaining 16 games are on the road
only 2 more back to backs
relatively easy overall schedule

it's playoffs... or drafting 10th-15th

the trade deadline just got more complicated

Hard road ahead, but doable. Won't mind trolling the NHL standings for a bit. Being ahead of the Rangers would be nice, too.

I can just feel those games in hand coming back to screw us though. We've played more than anyone around us in either direction. Still need a lot of outside help if we're gonna sneak into 8th.

Yep, it's over. I guess it's time to root for them to beat the long odds yet again. The more things change...

The draft was going to be the key for the retool anyway imo.

Root for the playoffs, Darcy's not going to do anything stupid.

expect mediocrity for years to come...

knowing that we're spoiling our chances at a top 5 pick yet we're not going to make the playoffs this year is a tough pill to swallow.

If we make the playoffs great, but honestly what's another 1 and done mean? More excuses for Darcy to keep this awful team together. We got dominated (again) tonight, but somehow we won.

THIS IS NOT A GOOD TEAM PEOPLE. There are so many holes in this boat, but please, keep believing in the delusion that we'll do something in the playoffs. I would be surprised if we won more than a game if we make it.

I'm cool with Myers/Hodgson/Armia/Grigs all in all. Great? No. But not woeful

but they aren't playing completely uninspired hockey... they still don't have the talent, but they are competing... so i doubt they are going to fail enough to get back into the top 5 pick range

i also dont think they are going to make the playoffs...

so... basically, its going to end up being the worst of all situations again...

I still think the Sabres will end up 12-13th in the east at the end of the season. What goes up will come down. This is especially true with the Sabres this season.

They'd probably get swept in the first round, but I'd take a sweep over a finish in no-man's land (i.e. 10th in the conference). Either get a really high pick or make the playoffs. Nothing in between. Sadly, "in between" territory looks like the most realistic outcome at the moment.

The has also played against 3 division rivals who the usually have suscess again. And got dominated for the most part but won. The games in FLA are key.
